CENTENNIAIi ALMANAC TOR 1882, 

JUPITER IS THE RULING PLA.NET THIS YEAR. 



The Year in General. — Will be tolerably good, yet 
more humid than dry ; but like Saturn its predecessor, 
with his long winter and terrible cold, it will be late, so 
that grain and seed will grow at least three weeks later 
than in other years. 

Spbinq —Until the Ist of May it will be cold and 
damp ; in the middle for ten or twelve days, temperate 
and thawing weather ; after until the end, cold ami damp. 

Summer. —The beginning will be cold and damp, in 
the middle it will be good, interpersed with much thun- 
der ; at the end, quite warm. If in this year the Summer 
be dry which scarcely happens in twenty-one years, the 
grain will be dear. If an Eclipse of the Sun occurs in 
February, March, April or May, the Summer will be dry. 

Fall. — Will have an abundance of rain. 

Winter. —The beginning will have a few days qiiite 
cold and much snow ; the latter part will be quite mild, 
without snow, yet very windy. 

SpaiNQ Crops. — This will be a good year for barley. 
If the summer be not dry, the quality and yield will be 
good. A good supply should be provided, as in the two 
following years little is to be expected. Oats, peas and 
millet will be a light crop. Flax and hemp will be small 
but good. Hay and aftermath will be good, but not^in 
all places ; so also with cabbage and turnips. 



There will 



be but little hay, straw and fodder in the two subsequent 
years, therefore good provision should be made in this 
year. 

Fall Crops — Sheep must be kept off both Spring and 
Fall crops. Even if sheep are not pastured on the graia 
in the Spring it will be late. Notwithstanding Jupiter 
is inclined to moisture, the grain, oftentimes in this year, 
will be later than usual 

Fall-seeding. — It is better to sow early, even if the 
winter sets in late, especially wheat, on account of the 
rough, dry Spring, which will follow ; if the grain should 
grow too rank, which it seldom does, it may be pastured 
by sheep. 

Fruit. — There will be but little fruit, and corn, no 
acorns, and few beech nuts. 

Hops. — Yield light, but very good. 

Grape Culture. — In twenty-eight years it seldom oc- 
curs once that in Jupiter's reign there will be choice 
wine, but little and sour : if adverse aspects interrupt, the 
fall will be late, and wine will be inferior. The vines 
need not be covered early, as the winter will be late set- 
ting in, yet it must not be neglected, for after Candlemas 
there will be much sleet. If an eclipse of the Sun occurs 
in February, March, April or May, when Jupiter, Marg 
or the Sun rule, the wine will be good.

BRE THREN' S ALMANAC 



[1882. 



INTRODUCTION. 



As an Almanac is one of the essentials of 
every household, and as Christian families pre- 
fer Almanacs of a Caristian character, we have 
again made preparations to publish the Annual 
''Brethren's Almanac" for the year 1882. In 
doing this we have tried to study the wants of 
our patrons and have endeavored to meet them 
as far as it was in our power to do so. 

We are aware of the diversity of opinion that 
obtains among us as to what the make-up of such 
an Almanac should be. And we are equally 
aware of the fact of our inability of meeting all 
these wants And while we could not do so we 
ask those to remember that if we should be able 
to meet the views of certain ones there would 
still be others who would be disappointed. 

In preparing matter for its pages we tried to 
keep in view the general want, and hope that in 
this we have not altogether failed. By carefully 
reading it you will find much that can be appro- 
priately adopted by all Christian families. Our 
space is too limited to give much variety as the 
Ministerial List is getting so large that a consider- 
able portion of the Almanac is required to con- 
tain it. 

The * Ministerial List" has been revised and 
corrected as far as we had means of doing it, 
but as always is the case — some held their cor- 
rections back until too late for insertion. Up to 
going to press, these names will be added in an 
appendix on the cover. 

With these remarks we now submit our Alma- 
nac for 1882 to the brotherhood, hoping that our 
efforts to supply our Church with a good Chris- 
tian Family Almanac will be appreciated and 
that we shall continue to receive the very liberal 
patronage that heretofore was given us. 



HOW RICH MEN BEGIN LIFE. 



Cornelius Yanderbilt began his life with an 
old pirough running between Statan Island and 
New York City, carrying garden stuff to market. 
With $2 000 or $3,000 raised from this source, he 
entered upon steadily increasing enterprises un- 
til he had amassed the enormous sum of $50,- 
000,000. 

A. T. Stewart first bought a few laces at auc- 
tion, and opened his way to success in a dingy 
little shop in Broadway, near the site of his 
wholesale establishment. Years of rigid honesty 
shrewd management, and wisdom in things both 
great and small, have made him the monumen 
tal merchant of the nineteeth century. 



Daniel Drew, in his early life, was a cattle 
driver at the munificent sum of 75 cents a day, 
and he has now driven himself into an estate 
valued at from $25,000,000 to $30 000 000. 

George Law, at 45 years of age, was a com- 
mon day laborer on the docks and at present 
counts his fortune at something like $10 000,- 
000. 

Robert L. and A'exander Stuart, the sugar 
refiners, m their boyhood sold molasses candy, 
which their widowed mother had made at a 
cent a stick, and to-day they are worth probably 
$5,000 000 to $6 000 000 apiece. 

Marshall O. Roberts is the possessor of $4 - 
000,000 or $5,000,000, and yet until he was 
twenty-five he did not have $100 he could call his 
own. 

H. B. Claflin, the eminent dry goods mer- 
chant, worth, it is estimated from $10000000 
to $15,000,000 commenced business with nothing 
but energy^ determination and hope. 



LOOK AFTER THE EYES. 



Multitudes of men and women have made 
their eyes weak for life by too free use of eye- 
sight, reading small print, and doing fine sew- 
ing. In view of these things it is well to ob- 
serve the following rules in the use of the eyes : 

Avoid all sudden changes between light and 
darkness. 

Never read by twilight, or on a very cloudy 
day. 

Never sleep so that on waking th e eyes shall 
open on the light of the window. 

Do not use eyesight by light so scant that it 
requires an effort to discriminate. 

Never read or sew directly in front of the 
light of a window. 

It is best to have the light from above, or ob- 
liquely, or over the left shoulder. 

Too much light creates a glare, and pains and 
confuses the sight. As soon as you are sensible 
of an effort to distinguish, that moment stop 
and talk, walk or ride. 

As the sky is blue and the earth green, it 
would seem that the ceiling should be a bluish 
tinge, the carpet green, and the walls of Bome 
mellow tint. 

The moment you are instinctively inclined to 
rub the eyes that moment cease to use them. 

If the eyelids are glued together on waking, 
do not forcibly open them, but apply saliva with 
the finger, and then wash your eyes and face 
with warm water.

PERPETUAL WEATHER TABLE. 



The following weather table, constructed by- 
Prof. Herschel, will be found wonderfully cor- 
rect : 

If the moon changes at 12 o'clock, noon, the 
weather immediately after will be very rainy, in 
summer, and there will be snow or rain, in win- 
ter. 

If between 3 and 4 o'clock p. m., changeable 
in summer — fair and mild in winter. 

Between 4 and 6 o'clock, fair both in winter 
and summer. 

Between 6 and 10 o'clock, p. m , in summer, 
fair, if the wind is northwest; rainy, if south or 
southwest. In winter, fair and frosty, if the 
wind is from the south or southwest. 

Between 10 and 12 p* m., rainy in summer, 
and fair and frosty in winter. 

Between 12 at night and 2 o'clock a. m., fair 
in summer, and frosty in winter — unless the wind 
is from the south or southeast. 

Between 2 and 4 a. m , cold and very showery 
in summer, and snow and storm in winter. 

Between 4 and 6 o'clock a. m., rainy both in 
summer and winter. 

Between 6 and 8 o'clock a. m., showery in 
summer, and cold in winter. 

Between 10 and 12 o'clock a. m., showery in 
summer and cold and windy in winter. 



THE BOY WHO LOVES HIS MOTHER. 



Of all the love affairs m the worM, none can 
surpass the true love of a big boy for his mother. 
It is a love pure and noble, honorable in the 
highest degree to both. I do not mean merely 
a dutiful affection. I mean a love which makes 
a boy gallant to his mother, saying plainly to 
everybody that he is faiily in love with her. 
Next to the love of her husband, nothing so 
crowns a woman's life with honor as this second 
love, this devotion of the son to her. And I 
never yet knew a boy to "turn out" badly 
who began by falling in love with his mother. 
Any man who falls in love with a fresh-faced 
girl, and the man who is gallant to the girl may 
cruelly neglect the worn and weary wife. But 
the big boy who is a lover of his mother, at 



middle age is a true knight, who will love his 
wife as much in the sere-leaf autumn as he did 
in dasied spring. There is nothing so beautiful- 
ly chivalrous as the love of a big boy for his 
mother. 



REMEDIES. 



Remedy for Croup. — Ha^f a teaspoonful of 
pulverized alum in a little molasses. It is a sim- 
ple remedy, one almost a'ways at hand, and 
one dose seldom fails to give relief. If it should, 
repeat it after one hour. 

Hoarseness is relieved by using, thoroughly 
beaten, the white of an tgg with lemon juice and 
sugar. Take a teaspoonful occasionally. 

Curing Bunions. — These terrible torments 
can be easily removed by using a weak solution 
of carbolic acid on them for about a month. 
They will entirely disappear. 

The London Milk Journal says that a pint of 
milk heated a little, but not boiled, taken every 
four hours, will check the most violent dia- 
rhcea,. stomach-ache, incipient cholera, and 
dysentery. 

A Simple and Effectual Remedy for Ivy Pois- 
oning, is said to be sweet spirits of nitre. Bathe 
the affected parts freely two or three times dur- 
ing the day, and the next morning scarcely any 
trace of the poison will remain. 

A Simple Remedy for Neuralgia, is horse- 
radish. Grate and mix it in vinegar, the same 
as for table purposes, and apply to the temple 
when the head or face is affected, or the wrist 
when the pain is in the arm or shoulder. 

For Earache. — Take a bit of cotton batting, 
put upon it a pinch of black pepper ; gather it 
up and tie it, dip it in sweet oil, and insert it in 
the ear. Put a flannel bandage over the head 
to keep it warm. It will give immediate relief. 

To Remove Dandruff — Take one ounce of 
flower of sulphur, put into a quart of soft water ; 
stir well and let stand for twenty-four hours, 
shaking frequently Pour off the clear liquid, 
and wet the scalp with it every morning, or two 
or three times a week for a month or more. 
The dandruff will soon disappear, and the hair 
become soft and glossy. 

Dyspepsia — A simple and effectual remedy 
for dyspepsia is to abstain from drinking imme- 
diately before and during meals, and for an 
hour afterwards. 

Indian Dysentery Remedy. — Root and 
leaves of blackberry bush boiled down ; a gill 
before each meal and before going to bed.

MARRIAGE FORMULAS. 



As frequent requests are sent us for marriage 
forms we think it may be acceptable to have 
several in the Almanac which may meet the 
general want. We therefore submit a few which 
are in harmony with the general usage and may 
serve as a guide to those who may be called 
upon to officiate in this capacity. 

A fter it has been ascertained that the parties 
are proper and legal subjects for marriage, and 
they have taken their respective positions the 
following foims may be used : 

DOUBLE FORMULA. 

Minister. — As you have now presented your- 
selves before me for the purpose of being united 
in holy matrimony, I ask you, (addressing the 
husband) Do you take this woman (the one at 
his side) to be your lawful wedded wife, to 
stand by, provide for, and protect her, forsaking 
all others and cleaving to her alone, until sepa- 
rated by death ? 

Answer by the man : ''I do." 

Minister, to the woman. — Do you take this 
man to be your lawful wedded husband, to 
stand by, love and respect him, forsaking a 1 
others and cleaving to him a'one until separated 
by death ? 

Answer by the woman : "I do." 

Minister. — By virtue of the authority invested 
in me as a minister of the Gospel and in accord 
with the laws of the State (here name the State) 
I pronounce you man and wife. 

Prayer. — And may the God of Abraham, 
Isaac and Jacob guide you, by his Spirit through 
life, bless you, and in death save you for Christ's 
sake. Amen. 

As the desire is becoming very general to 
have these ceremonies as short as possible be- 
lieving that a sermon or lecture on such occa- 
sions are not edifying, we also give what is usu- 
ally called the 

SINGLE FORMULA. 

After all is in readiness, the minister addresses 
the party to be married as follows : 

Do you, and each of you, promise to take 
each other as husband and wife, performing to- 
wards each other the proper functions of the 



marriage state, forsaking all others and cleaving 
to each other, until separated by death ? 

(Answer by the man ) 'I do." 

(By the woman ) 'I do." 

Minister. — By virtue of my authority as a 
minister of the Gospel and in accord with the 
laws of the State, (name the State) I pronounce 
you man and wife. 

Prayer, the same as that of the first formu'a, 
or any other suitable prayer can be used. 
_«-i 

THE NUMBER SEVEN. 



This number is frequently used in the writings 
of the Bible. 

On the yth day God ended his work. 

On the 7th month Noah's Ark touched the 
ground. 

In 7 days a dove was sent out. 

Abraham pleaded 7 times for Sodom. 

Jacob served seven years for Rachel. 

And yet others 7 more. 

Jacob mourned 7 days for Joseph 

Jacob was pursued a 7 day's journey by La- 
ban. 

A plenty of 7 years and a famine of 7 years 
were foretold in Pharaoh's dream, by 7 fat and 
7 lean beasts, and 7 ears of full and 7 ears of 
blasted corn. 

On the 7th day of the 7th month, the children 
of Israel fasted 7 days and remained 7 days in 
tents. 

Every 7th year the land rested. 

Every 7th year the bondman were all let free. 

Every 7 th year the law was read to the peo- 
ple. 

In the destruction of Jericho, 7 priests bore 7 
trumpets 7 days; on the 7th day they surround- 
ed the wall 7 times ; at the end of the 7th round 
the walls fell. 

Solomon was 7 years building the temple, and 
fasted 7 days at its dedication 

In the tabernacle were seven lamps. 

The, golden candlestick had 7 branches. 

Naaman washed 7 times in Jordan. 

Jacob's friends sat with him 7 days and 7 
nights, and offered 7 bullocks and 7 rams as an 
atonement. 

Our Savior spoke 7 times from the cross, on 
which he hung 7 hourS; and after his resurrec- 
tion appeared 7 times. 

In the Lord's prayer are 7 petitions containing 
7 times 7 words. 

In the Revelations we read of 7 churches, 7 
candlesticks, 7 stars, 7 trumpets, 7 plagues, 7 
vails, 7 angels, and a 7-headed monster.

DATES OF SACRED EVENTS. 



We give the following dates of events so sa- 
cred to all Christians on the authority of the late 
Rev. Samual Farnaer Jarvis D. D., LL. D , an 
eminent scholar and divine of the Episcopal 
Church, whose profound learning and diHgent 
researches into antiquities would have distin- 
guished him in any age : 

Our Savior was born on Wednesday, Decem- 
ber 25, 4707, Julian period; 193d Olympiad (2d 
year, 6th month); A. U. C. 747 (9th month, 5th 
day) ; Julian year 39. 

He was baptized by St. John in the river Jor- 
dan on Sabbath (Saturday), January 6, 4738. 

His public entry into Jerusalem was on Palm 
Sunday, March 21, 4741, JuHan period; 201st 
Olympiad (4th year 9th month); A. U. C, 780 ; 
Julian year 73, A. D 28; 19th year of the as- 
sociate reign of the Emperor Tiberius; 15th 
year of his sole reign. 

He was betrayed by Judas Iscariot on the fol- 
lowing Wednesday evening, March 24. 

He celebrated the Passover and instituted the 
Eucharist on Thursdy evening, March 25. 

On Friday morning, March 16 at the 3d hour 
or 9 o'clock, he was nailed to the cross ; the 
hour when the lamb of the daily morning sacri- 
fice was offered in the Temple. At the 9th 
hour, or 3 o'clock P. M., when the lamb of the 
daily evening sacrifice was offered in the Tem- 
ple, he expired. At 5 P. M. his body was taken 
down and deposited in the tomb of Joseph of 
Arimathea. 

On the first Easter Sunday, March 28, about 
the beginning of the morning watch, or 3 o'clock 
A M., he rose from the dead. It was the mor- 
row after the last Jewish Sabbath, when, accord- 
ing to the law, the first sheaf of the earliest ripe 
grain was waved in the Temple, by which the 
whole harvest was sacrificed, that Christ ''the 
first fruits," rose from the dead, as a type and 
pledge of the future resurrection of his faithful 
followers. 

On Thursday, May 6, he ascended into heaven. 

On Sunday, May 16 the day of Pentecost, 
the Holy Ghost descended upon the apostles and 
disciples. 



A CENTURY'S CHANGES. 



The nineteenth century has witnessed many 
and great discoveries 

In 1808, Fulton took the first patent for the 
invention of the steamboat. 

The first steamboats which made regular trips 
across the Atlantic Ocean were the Sirius and 
the Great Western, in 1830. 

The first public application to practical use of 
gas for practical illumination, was made in 1802. 

In 18 13, the streets of London were for the 
first time lighted with gas 

In 1790, there were only twenty-five post-ofii- 
ces in the whole country and up to 1837 the 
rates of postage were twenty-five cents for every 
four hundred miles 

1807, wooden clocks commenced to be made 
by machinery. This ushered in the era of cheap 
clocks. 

About the year 1833, the first railroad of any 
considerable length, in the United States, was 
constructed. 

In 1840 the first experiments in photography 
were made by Daguerre. 

About 1840 the first express business was es- 
tablished 

The anthracite coal business may be said to 
have begun in 1820. 

In 1846, the first patent for the invention in 
matches was granted. 

In 1845. the first telegram was sent. 

Steel pens were introduced for use in 1803. 

The first successful trial of a reaper took place 
in 1833. 

In 1845, Elias Howe obtained a patent for his 
sewing machine. 

The first successful method of making vulcan- 
ized India rubber was patented in 1838. 



BE WHAT YOU ARE. 



Do not be above your business, no matter what 
that may be, but strive to be the best in that 
line. He who turns up his nose at his work 
quarrels with his bread and butter. He is a 
poor smith who quarrels with his own sparks ; 
there's no shame about an honest calling ; don't 
be afraid of soiling your hands, there's plenty of 
soap to be had. You cannot get honey if you 
are frightened at bees nor plant corn it you are 
afraid of getting mud on your boots Above 
all, avoid laziness. There is plenty to do in this 
world for every pair of hands placed in it. and 
we must so work that the world will be richer 
because of our having lived in it.

CHRIST'S LOVE. 



I can measure parental love — how broad, how 
long and strong and deep it is ; it is a sea — a 
deep sea, which mothers only can fathom But 
the love displayed on yonder hill and bloody 
cross, where God's own Son is perishing for us, 
no man nor angel has a line to measure. The 
circumference of the earth, the altitude of the 
sun, the distance of the planets— these have 
been determined : but the height, depth, breadth 
and length of the love of God pass our knowl 
edge. Such is the Father against whom all of 
us have sinned a thousand times ! Walk the 
shore where the ocean sleeps in the summer 
calm, or, lashed into fury by the winter's tem- 
pest, is thundering on her sands ; and when you 
have numbered the drops of her waves, the 
sand on her rounding beach you have numbered 
God's mercies and your sins. Well therefore 
may we go to Him with the contrition of the 
prodigal in our hearts, and his confession on our 
lips : ''Father I have sinned against heaven and 
in Thy sight." The Spirit of God helping us to 
go to God, be assured that the Father who, see- 
ing his son afar off, ran to meet him, fell on his 
neck, and kissed him, was but an image of Him, 
who not sparing His own Son but giving Him 
up to death that we might live, invites and now 
awaits our coming. — Dr. Guthrie. 
_«►-, 

SALT FOR THE THROAT. 



In these days when the diseases of the throat 
are so universally prevalent, and in so many 
cases fatal, we feel it our duty to say a word in 
behalf of a most effectual, if not positive, cure 
for sore throat. 

For many years past, indeed we may say dur 
ing the whole of a life of more than forty years 
we have been subject to sore throat, and more 
particularly to a dry hacking cough, which is 
not only distressing to ourselves, but to our 
friends and those with whom we are brought into 
business 

Last fall we we were induced to try what vir- 
tue there was in common salt. We commenced 
by using it three times a day — morning noon 
and night. We dissolved a large tablespoonful 



of pure table salt in about a half small tumbler 
full of water. With this we gargle the throat 
most thoroughly just before meal time. The re- 
sult has been that during the entire winter we 
were not only free from coughs and colds, but 
the dry hacking cough has entirely disappeared. 

We attribute this satisfactory results solely to 
the use of salt gargle, and most cordially recom- 
mend a trial of it to those who are subject to this 
disease of the throat. 

Many persons who have never tried the salt 
gargle have the impression that it is unpleasant. 
Such is not the case. On the contrary, it is 
pleasant, and after a few days use no person who 
loves a nice clean mouth and a first-rate sharpen 
er of the appetite will abandon it.— Ex. 



DO IT NOW. 



Don't spend an hour of your life without doing 
exactly what is to be done in it, and going straight 
through with it from beginning to end. Work, 
play, study, whatever it is — take hold at once, 
and finish it up squarely and cleanly , and then 
to the next without letting any moments drop out 
between. It is wonderful to see how many 
hours these prompt people contrive to make out 
of a day ; it is as if they picked up the mo- 
ments that the dawdlers lost And if ever you 
find yourself where you have so many things 
pressing upon you that you hardly Know how to 
begin, let me tell you a secret, take hold of the 
very first one that comes to hand, and you will 
find the rest all fall into file and follow after life e 
a company of well-drilled soldiers; and though 
work may be hard to meet when it charges in a 
squad, it is easily vanquished if you can brmg 
it into line You men have often seen the anec- 
dote of the man who was asked how he accom- 
plished so much in life. "My father taught me," 
was the reply, "when I had anything to do, to 
go and do it." There is the secret— the magic 
word ' now." 



KEEP BUSY. 



The man who has nothing to do is the most 
miserable of beings. If you have no regular 
work, do chores as the farmers do when it rains 
too hard to worK in the field. In occupation, 
we forget our troubles, and get a respite from 
sorrow. The man whose mind and hands are 
busy, finds no time to weep and wail. If work 
is slack, spend your time in reading. No man 
ever knew too much.

FASHIONABLE WOMEN. 



Fashion kills more women than toil and sor- 
row. Obedience to fashion is a greater trans- 
gression of the laws of woman's nature, a great- 
er injury to her physical and mental constitution 
than poverty and neglect. The slave-woman at 
her tasks will live and grow old, and see two or 
three generations of her mistresses fade and 
pass away. The washer-woman with scarce a 
ray of hope to cheer her in her toils, will live to 
see her fashionable sisters die all around her. 
The kitchen-maid is hearty and strong, when 
her lady has to be nursed like a sick baby. It 
is a sad truth that fashion-pampered women are 
almost worthless for all the ends of human life. 
They have but little force of character ; they 
have still less power of moral will, and quite as 
little physical energy. They live for no great 
purpose in life ; they accomplish no worthy 
ends. They are only doll forms in the hands of 
milliners and servants, to be dressed and fed to 
order. They write no books ; they set no rich 
examples of virtue and womanly life. If they 
rear children, servants and nurses do all, save to 
conceive and give them birth — and when reared 
what are they ? What do they ever amount to 
but weak scions of the old stock? Who ever 
heard of a fashionable woman's child exhibiting 
any virtue or power of mind for which it be- 
came eminent? Read the biographies of our 
great and good men and women. Not one of 
them had a fashionable mother. They nearly 
all sprang from a strong-minded woman, who 
had about as little to do with fashion as with the 
changing clouds. 



AN INJURIOUS PRACTICE. 



"Picking the ears" is a most injurious prac- 
tice. In attempting to do this with hard sub- 
stances, an unlucky motion has many a time 
pierced the drum and made it as useless as a 
pierced India rubber life-preserver. Nothing 
sharper or harder than the end of the little fin- 
ger, with the nail paired, ought ever to be in- 
troduced into the ear, unless by a physician. 
Persons are often seen endeavoring to remove 
the * wax" of the ear with the head of a pin. 



This ought never be done ; because it not only 
endangers the rupture of the ear by being push- 
ed too far in, but if not so far, it may grate 
against the drum, excite the inflammation and 
an ulcer which will finally eat all the parts away, 
especially if of a scrofulous constitution. Hard 
substances have often slipped in, and caused the 
necessity of painful, dangerous and expensive 
operations, -to fish or cut it out. The wax is 
manufactured by nature to guard the entrance 
from dust, insects and unmodified cold air, and 
when it has subserved its purpose, it becomes 
dry, scaly, light, and in this condition is easily 
pushed outside by new formations of wax with- 
in. 



EXPANDING THE LUNGS. 



Step out into the purest air you can find ; 
stand perfectly erect, with head and shoulders 
back, and then, fixing the lips as if you were 
going to whistle, draw the air through the lips 
into the lungs. When your chest is about half 
full, gradually raise the arms, keeping them ex- 
tended, with the palms of the hands down, as 
you suck in the air. so as to bring them over the 
head just as the lungs are full. Then drop the 
thumbs inward, and after gently forcing the 
arms backward and the chest open reverse the 
process by which you draw your breath till the 
lungs are empty. This process should be re- 
peated immediately after bathing, and also sev- 
era' times through the day. It is impossible to 
describe to one who has never tried it, the glo- 
rious sense of vigor which follows this exercise. 
It is the best expectorant in the world. We 
know a gentleman the measure of whose chest 
has been increased by this means three or four 
inches during as many months. 



A TRUE GENTLEMAN. 



Show us a man who can quit the society of 
the youngs and take pleasure in listening to the 
kindly voice of the old ; show us a man who is 
always ready to pity and help the deformed ; 
show us a man that covers the faults of others 
with a mantle of charity; show us a man that 
bows as politely and give the street as freely to 
the poor sewing girl as to the millionaire ; show 
us a man who abhors the libertine who scorns 
the slanderer of his mother's sex and the expo- 
sure of womanly reputation ; show us the man 
who never forgets the delicacy and respect due 
a woman in any condition — and you show us a 
gentleman.

ANCIENT WONDERS. 



Nineveh was fourteen miles long, eight miles 
wide, and forty-six miles around, with a wall 
one hundred feet high, and thicK enough for 
three chariots abreast 

Babylon was fifty miles within the walls, 
which were seventy-three feet thick and one 
hundred feet high, with one hundred brazen 
gates. 

The Temple of Diana, at Ephesus, was four 
hundred and twenty feet to the support of the 
roof — it was one hundred years in building. 

The largest of the pyramids was four hundred 
and eighty-one feet in height, and eight hun- 
dred and fifty three feet on the sides. The base 
covered eleven acres. The stones are about 
sixty feet in length, and the layers are two hun- 
dred and eight. It employed 350,000 men in 
building. 

The labyrinth of Egypt contains three hun- 
dred chambers and twelve halls. 

Thebes, in Egypt, presents ruins twenty-seven 
miles around, and contained 350,000 citizens 
and 400 000 slaves. 

The Temple of Delphos was so rich in dona- 
tions that it was plundered of $50,000,000, and 
the Emperor Nero carried away from it two 
hundred statues. The walls were thirteen miles 
around. 



HOUSEHOLD COMFORTS. 



A man's house should be his earthly paradise. 
It should be, of all other spots, one which he 
leaves with the most regret and to which he re- 
turns with the most delight. And in order to 
make it so, it should be his daily task to provide 
everything convenient and comfortable for his 
wife. With every provision he can possibly 
make, hers will be a life of care and of toil. 
She is the sentinel who can seldom, if ever, be 
relieved. Others may sleep, but if there be one 
who must watch it is she. She ought, there- 
fore, to be furnished with every comfort within 
the means of her husband. Generally, every 
shilling expended for the accommodations of 
his wife in her domestic operations is returned 
upon him fourfold, if not precisely in pecuniary 



advantages, though this is often true, it will be 
found in the order, peace, and happiness of the 
family. 



DON'T DO IT. 



Don't grumble about your lot. Many a man 
has not even a leasehold. 

Don't boast of your virtues. You might 
tempt the devil to invoice your vices. 

Don't flatter yourself that you are bound for 
Heaven. Heaven is not reached by a single 
bound. 

Don't marry in haste and 'repent at leisure.'* 
It may require more leisure than you have at 
your disposal. 

Don t grieve over '^what might have been." 
You might have been a Councilman. 

Don't strive for the unattainable. Better get 
a job in the brickyard 

Don't ''rest on your laurels." Try something 
more substantial ; a corn-husk mattress, for in- 
stance. 

Don't throw stones at your neighbor. The 
world might very naturally inqurie if you are 
without sin 



A CURE FOR CORNS. 
There is but one cure for corns and that is : 
Take a lemon and roll it until soft ; cut a thick 
slice and bind it on the corn on retiring at night. 
In the morning if the corn is white and disinte- 
grated, pull it out with your finger-nails, never 
cut a corn. Sometimes several applications of 
the lemon slices will be necessary, but the corns 
are bound to succumb, and ycu can dance the 
next night if you like. After you remove the 
corns wear shoes that fit and are not to stiff 
in the soles. 



TEA AND COFFEE. 



The eminent Dr. BocV, of Leipsic, writes as 
follows respecting the influence of tea and coffee 
on character : — 

"The nervousness and peevishness of our 
times are chiefly attributed to tea and coffee ; the 
digestive organs of confirmed coffee drinkers are 
in a state of chronic derangement, which reacts 
on the brain, producing fretful and lachrymose 
moods. Fine ladies addicted to strong coffee 
have a characteristic temper, which I might de- 
scribe as a mania for acting the persecuted saint. 
Chocolate is neutral in its physic effects, and is 
really the most harmless of our fashionable 
drinks. The snappish, petulent humor of the 
Chinese can certainly be ascribed to their im- 
moderate fondness for tea."

[1882. 




BROTHER CHRISTOPER SAUR'S 
JOURNAL. 



The original is a i2mo half bound volume, 
with leather back and cornes containing about 
one hundred pages of carelessly written German 
manuscript much of it with such poor ink that 
it is hard to decipher. The heading or tit e of 
it, as near as I can give it in Eag ish is "A 
Memorandum of some Remarkable Occurrences 
that have occurred to me, Christopher Saur " 
Then he goes on and says : 

'' I was born on the 26th of September, 1721, 
in the town of Laasphe in the province of Wit- 
genstein, six leagues (about eighteen miles) from 
Marpurg, and came over to Pennsy vania with 
my dear father, Christopher Saur, in the Autumn 
of 1724, and lived in Germantown till in the 
Spring of 1726 we moved to Lancaster county, 
Pa., and lived on Mi'l Creek till April 1731 we 
moved back again to Germantown. 

"I was born again, through the holy ordi- 
nance of baptism, on the 24th of February, 

^737 

*-My father commenced his printing office in 
the Summer of 1738 See note a at the c ose. 

*'I commenced my hermitage {Einsidler stand) 
in the fall of 1743. See note b 

^' My mother moved to me about the middle 
of November, 1744. Note d. 

"My mother took charge again of my father's 
household on the 20th of June 1745. Notes b 
and c 

"In May, 1747, the Brethren laid on me the 
office of poor server (Armen Diener) or deacon. 

'*0n the ist of June, 1748, I was chosen 
with the four brethren to the service of the 
church, and on the 8th of the same month the 
care or oversight (aufsicht) of the church was 
laid upon me and brother A exander Mack, on 
tria'. Note d. 

'On the 3d of November, 1748, I baptized 
for the first time. 

" On the 4th of December, 1752, my beloved 
mother fell as'eep in the Lord. 

•'On the loth of June, 1753, hands were laid 
on me and on brother Alexander Mack, and on 
brother Henry Schling'uff. Note e. 



"On the 25th of September, 1758, my beloved 
father f e 1 asleep in the Lord, aged 64 years. 

'On the 8th of January, 1777, my behoved 
wife Catharine fell asleep, happy in the Lord, 
aged 47 years and 9 months." &c., &c. 

Here commences the American Revolution, 
during which trying time he made many notes, 
but that my paper may not get too long I pass 
over that period entirely, as I have many other 
entries until under date of 

'• August 9th, 1780 " he says, " I took a jour- 
ney to the Schuylkill, (now called Coventry, in 
Chester county. Pa,,) and on the loth I went 
from there, with brother Martin Urner, to the 
Little Swatara. On the 12th we had meeting 
there and laid hands on the following brethren, 
viz : Martin Gaby as overseer ( Forste/ier) , DsLvid 
Kintzy, as assistant speaker or JDiener, in O ey, 
and Michael Frantz, as overseer; and George 
Bashor and Jacob Meyer, as speakers or 
preachers at the Little Swatara On the 15th of 
August we laid hands on brother George Miller 
at the Big Swatara to confirm him as overseer 
of the church there. We a^so had meeting 
there. On the i6th we went in the White Oa'2 
church where we laid hands on brother Johannas 
Zug to confirm him in the office of overseer, to 
serve under brother Christel Longenecker, but 
in case brother Longenecker should die, be 
sick, be on a journey or move away, he is fully 
empowered to serve the office, but, except in 
the above cases, he shall not undertake any- 
thing of importance without brother Longa- 
necker's counsel and advice. Had also a laige 
meeting there. On the 17th we had meeting 
at brother George Royer's, and on the 1 8th at 
brother Michael Ranck's." &c , &c. 

After several other notes comes his family 
record, then a long list of the persons he bap- 
tized, also of those he married ; and next is a 
list of friends and brethren, when they died, not 
only of the church in Germantown, but of most 
others as far as he was personally acquainted 
with them ; after which follow miscellaneous 
memorandums, accounts etc , that are not of 
general interest, shall therefore let the above 
suffice. 

NOTE A. 

Christopher Saur was not professionally a printer, 
but a clerk and mathematical instrument maker. 
After the persecutions had driven nearly all the 
mother church from Schwartzenau and Berlin- 
burgh, where the Brethren had a small printing 
press, it was sent after them to Germantown, where 
it came into the custody of Christopher Saur, and 
as he was naturally a genius he experimented in

setting type and soon got into the way of printing: 
small matters. And as there was at that time such 
a pressing necessity for printing, he turned more 
of his attention to it and became a very extensive 
publisher. We have at least one hundred and 
fifty titles of books and pamphlets that he printed 
in course of forty years. 

NOTES B AND C. 

In consequence of Conrad Beissel (founder of a 
nunnery at Ephrata) preaching so much on the 
virtues of celibacy, a number of young men estab- 
lished themselves in hermitages of single livings, 
among them being Christopher Saur, Jr., while 
many others went to the nunnery. Several wives 
did also leave their husbands on account of this 
doctrine, among them being the wife of the elder 
Christopher Saur. She left him for the nunnery in 
1730 and soon became Vice-Prioress of the institu- 
tion, under the conventical name of Marcella 
until 1744, when, on account of her infirmities, she 
was entreated by her son Christopher to come back. 
She went back to her son, but did not unite 
with her husband until sometime afterwards when 
his sickness required her attention. 

NOTE D. 

It was the custom among our ancient brethren to 
elect all oflicers on trial, then, if approved, they 
were confirmed in their several offices by the laying 
on of hands. 

NOTE E. 

There were four elected at the same time to 
serve the church in different capacities, but one of 
them, Martin Urner, had moved to Coventry, there- 
fore, on this occasion hands were laid on the three 
only, while the fourth one was not present, but 
they were laid on him soon afterwards, and he 
became an eminent worker in the church. Henry 
Schlingluff was also confirmed in his office as dea- 
con by the laying on of hands, but was never 
advanced any further, although he was a very 
worthy deacon (or Arrroen Diener) to the close of 
his life.

WHERE ALL THE DEAD PRESIDENTS 
ARE BURIED. 



The body of George Washington is resting in 
a brick vault at Mt. Vernon enclosed in a mar- 
ble coffin. 

John Adams was buried in a vault beneath the 
Unitarian church at Quincy. The tomb is wall- 
ed in with large blocks of roughly faced granite. 

J ohn Quincy Adams lies in the same vault by 
the side of his father. In the church above, on 
either side of the pulpit, are tablets of clouded 
marble, each surmounted by a bust and inscribed 
with the familiar epitaphs of the only father and 
son that ever held the highest office in the gift 
of the American people 

Thomas Jefferson lies in a small unpretentious 
private cemetery of one hundred feet square 
near Montice'lo. 

James Madison's remains rest in a beautiful 
spot on the old Madison estate near Orange, Va. 

James Monroe's body reposes in Hollywood 
Cemetery, Ya., on an eminence surrounding a 
beautiful view of Richmond and the James 
river. Above the body is a huge block of pol-

block of granite, on which are brass p'ate suita- 
bly inscribed. The whole is surrounded by a 
sort of gothic temple — four pillars supporting a 
peaked roof to which something of the appear- 
ance of a bird-cage is imparted by filling in the 
interstices with iron gratings. 

Andrew Jackson was, buried in the corner of 
the Garden of tt^qg^fei^ilage^ ,e^Yen miles from 
Nashville. T^'tdwnb is eighteen 'feet in diame-

BIBLE ARITHMETIC. 



Addition. — Add to your fath, virtue; and to 
virtue, knowledge ; and to knowledge, temper- 
ance , and to temperance, patience ; and to 
patience, godHness ; and to godliness, brotherly 
kindness ; and to brotherly kindness, charity. 
2 Peter i : 5-7. 

Add in your heart this perfect number of 
seven graces together and if these things b^ in 
you and abound, they will make you neither 
ban en nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our 
Lord Jesus Christ. 

Subtraction. — He that lacketh these things 
is blind, and cannot see afar off^ and hath for- 
gotten that he was purged from his old sins. 
2 Peter i : 9. 

Multiplication — Grace and peace be mul- 
tiplied unto you through the knowledge of God,, 
and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Peter 1:2. 

He that ministereth seed to the sower both 
minister bread for your food, and multiply your 
seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righ- 
teousness. 2 Cor. 9 : 10. 

Division. — Come out from among them, and 
be ye separate, saith tbe Lord, and touch not 
the unclean thing ; and I will receive you, and 
will be a father unto you and ye shall be My 
sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. 2 
Cor. 6 : 17-18. 



WISDOM. 



Every lie, great or small, is the brink of a 
precipice, the depth of which none but Omnis- 
cience can fathom. 

When our cup runs over we let others drink 
the drops that fall^ but not a drop within the 
rim and call it charity. 

True friends visit us in prosperity only when 
invited, but in adversity they come without in- 
vitation.
